Vialta Enters Digital Frame Market

Fremont, Calif. – Vialta announced this week that it would enter the digital photo frame market with its first product, the VistaFrame. The company, which manufacturers the Beamer Videophone and the recently introduced

Beamer TV

, is currently shipping the VistaFrame for a suggested retail price of $299.99. The 6.8-inch TFT LCD digital frame can display JPEG images from flash memory cards or eight photos can be stored on the frames internal memory. The unit accepts CompactFlash, Memory Stick, SD, SmartMedia, and MultiMediaCard flash cards. Consumers can create slideshows with custom settings while the frame’s control buttons enable users to determine the picture orientation, adjust the interval speed and select the transition effect of the slideshow display. A “thumbnails” setting allows users to see six pictures on the display screen at the same time. The VistaFrame automatically goes into power-saving mode if it has not been used for 60 minutes, and wakes up either when the built-in motion sensor detects movement, a memory card is inserted, or a button is pressed. n
